Manchester United are on a brilliant winning run at the moment under the guidance of Erik ten Hag. The Red Devils have already won more games than they did in the entire last campaign.
The Old Trafford outfit should continue to strengthen their squad and in our view, a top class creative midfielder must be signed to replace Paul Pogba.
For a long time, we continued to utilize Scott McTominay and Fred in the center of the park and the duo were never able to perform consistently.
In the summer, Ten Hag lured the likes of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen and they have formed a world class partnership in the Dutchman’s 4-2-3-1 system.
However, the Brazilian and the Danish star are veterans and the latter is basically playing out of his natural AM position.
Moreover, we need to improve the quality and depth of the department and in our view, Man Utd have to finally move to secure the signing of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
The 20-time English champions have been heavily linked with the Serbian star for quite some time. Even in the summer transfer window, they were after him (Corriere dello Sport).
The 27-year-old directly contributed in 23 goals in all competitions (11 goals and 12 assists) for Lazio in the last campaign.
In the current campaign, so far, the creative midfielder has featured in 23 games, scored 5 goals and provided 8 assists under the management of former Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri.
At the weekend, the former Genk man set up the second goal of the game as Lazio defeated Sassuolo 2-0 away from home in the Italian Serie A.
Milinkovic-Savic’s contract with Lazio will expire in 2024 and the Rome based side are prepared to offload him in January for a fee of £53million (60 million euros).
In your opinion, should Man Utd pay £53million to finally sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic?
